Crews at Murrieta Fire Station No. 1 went right to work Wednesday rescuing a kitten that had become trapped in the dashboard of a car.
It at all started at about 6 p.m. when a woman drove to the firehouse on Juniper Street seeking assistance for her predicament, according to Murrieta Fire Department Spokesman Matt Corelli.
"The crews identified that the dashboard would have to be disassembled to rescue the kitten," Corelli said. "After 20 minutes of removing parts of the vehicle’s dashboard, the kitten was removed without injury."
The kitten did not belong to the woman, but she took it home with her in an attempt to find its owner, he said.
"Crews reassembled the (dashboard) and caused no damage to the vehicle."
